Among the starters today is recent signing Alexis Sanchez, who will make his debut for the Red Devils, following his switch from Arsenal this week.
Sanchez plays in the attack alongside Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata.
Also in the starting lineup for Manchester United for the knock fixture at Huish Park are, Michael Carrick, who starts in midfield and captains the squad, as well as left-back Luke Shaw.
Scott McTominay and Ander Herrera will join Carrick in midfield, as Nemanja Matic is on the bench to start this one and Paul Pogba is being rested.
Sergio Romero starts in goal with David de Gea given the day off, while Matteo Darmian, Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo are in defense.
Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Romelu Lukaku are among the players on a strong Manchester United bench.
Yeovil are sitting 21st in League Two and are the lowest-ranked team left in the competition, still Mourinho will not take them lightly.
“We want to win. We know what cups are. Manchester United played a couple of years ago at Yeovil [in January 2015] and they know the difficulties they felt,” Mourinho said at his pre-game interview.
“So we have to go with a very strong team. We are going to rest a couple of players.”
He added: “We also have a couple of problems that we want to try to resolve, with problems for the next matches in February in the Premier League and also Champions League. But it will be a very strong team.”
